A monthly discussion about the environmental history community and research in Canada. North American environmental history is punctuated by notorious episodes of species extinctions, most notably the cases of the passenger pigeon and the bison. In both cases, humans exhausted what they believed were unlimited resources in the absence of any scientific management or regulations. The collapse of the Newfoundland cod fishery in the 1990s stands out from these previous events because of the industr...
